Sister Organization of the National Black Chamber of Commerce Brings Entrepreneurs Together in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for Three Days of Extraordinary Networking

NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The second annual PanAfrican Entrepreneurs Conference (PAEC) will convene at the luxurious, all-inclusive Paradisus Palma Real Golf and Spa Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  The conference will be held over the US Thanksgiving holiday, from November 28 to December 1, 2013.

Amongst the invitees are American and foreign business and government officials ready to share insights on some of the conference’s key topics. These hot topics will range from intellectual property, trade secrets, and currency exchange issues to analyzing the anatomy of an international scam and more. “The mission of PAEC is to create an arena for entrepreneurs and business people within the Black Diaspora to meet and further business connections,” says Kay DeBow, president of PAEC, adding that “discussions will consist of policy improvements and issue awareness that will benefit the status of black entrepreneurs internationally.”

PAEC’s project strategies are to promote, help develop and expose procurement opportunities for entrepreneurs. These opportunities include:  infrastructure, energy, water management, agri-business, telecommunications, fashion, logistics, transportation, healthcare, environmental management, bidding/tender/RFP management, IT, and rare minerals.

Conference participants will learn about innovative capital formation through various avenues such as the World Bank, IMF, Export Import Bank, Hermes, Asian Development Bank, Equity Funding, European Union, and others.  Proud of the innovative techniques being showcased at the conference, Harry C. Alford, president/CEO of National Black Chamber of Commerce comments, “Several attendees possess the capacity to fund projects through BOTs (build-operate-transfer) and BOOTs (build-own-operate-transfer) and therefore do not require any investment assistance.”

Entrepreneurs in attendance will be integral to an international discussion on trade policy formation. This discussion will include: AGOA oversight, tariffs and duty relief, US Corrupt Practices Act, best practices in foreign business, DR-Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) and implications of Whole Foods, General Electric and Walmart in Africa.

This event is open to the public.  Reserve your suite now, early bird discount rates will expire September 30 and October 26 is the final deadline to register at www.panafricanec.org. Conference registration is free, and all food, beverages, gratuities, greens fees, nightly shows and beach activities are included in the hotel suite rate.
